Vector Transformation. Broken textA global P&C insurance carrier had decided to consolidate and rationalize the IT organizations supporting their North America business units. The consolidated $200M IT organization needed to establish a plan that would identify synergies, achieve cost efficiencies, and establish a single IT culture.

Acting as an interim SVP a new technology management function was established. This new role was responsible for developing an IT transformation strategy and leading a transformation program to consolidate the IT organizations. As part of the transformation an external benchmarking study was conducted to develop a multi-faceted road-map to introduce new best practice disciplines, implement new sourcing strategies, and better leverage technology investments.

Key Project Outcomes

  • Implementation of an infrastructure shared services model; help desk, data center, and disaster recovery
  • Leverage opportunities related to common document management, e-commerce, and business intelligence investments were identified
  • Implementation of best practices such as portfolio management, agile methodologies, and shared architecture capabilities
  • Deployment of a new application development and maintenance model and sourcing strategy
  • Development of a roadmap to achieve 10% to 15% in IT cost efficiencies
